St. Mark’s Community Hub is about connecting people locally and providing a space for that enables local people to mix and make local connections. We focus particularly on older people in the Kingstanding area, which includes the council wards of Kingstanding and Oscott. There is something happening most days from activity in our building to trips to local places and beyond. You can always expect a warm welcome and we are interested in developing new activities that you would like to take part in.
Activities in relation to Covid 19:
We have made changes to our operations in the light of the Covid 19 pandemic. We are closely following government guidelines and updating procedures as required. A code is on display in the building so that people can link to the NHS Track and Trace System.
Hand Sanitisers are available at each entry point and social distancing measures are very clearly defined.
We are offering a meal delivery service on 4 days of the week. The price is £5 for a hot two course meal. Please contact us for further details.
